    I'm not going to copy and paste the contents of the original thread because I'm not sure if they would want that but I will copy and paste the thread link.

    As of right now, we're waiting for the dl links to go live. I can't wait! I'm charging up the gtab and installing the new CWM recovery once my gtab is fully charged.

    [ROM - 1.2] BETA ICS 4.0.X - Team DRH - SlateDroid.com

    Our "lowly" gtabs have an ICS rom...take that Viewsonic!

    can't wait for this! i am sincerely hoping we have working flash on ICS, living without it has been annoying on HC builds, especially since i can't stand using opera. :p

    It worked in the alpha trials so I am sure it will work with the beta

    It's still a beta so I'll doubt it's going to be a 100%. But I think it'll make the gtab more appealing. :)

    Also it seems as if it still has the rom slowdowns that the alpha had. Seemed to happen frequently while browsing and by slow down it does mean slow.

    So I got it installed and played around with it for an hour.

    I used the NVflash method to revert back to stock 1.2 bootloader with the newest CWM pre-loaded. The actual installation process was painless. It took longer to boot and go through the intial setup than it was to install the ROM.

    There are a lot of slow downs at first with the UI but that goes away. There's still slow downs on certain apps particularly the new google apps. It reminds me of the first couple of HC roms that popped up. The ROM is usable but it's not polished by any means. I'm assuming things will get better once the kernel settles in.

    One thing I love is Youtube HD. This alone will probably make me endure the ROM's shortcomings. I haven't tried flash on the browser yet but I did try out a few HD video clips using QQplayer and Mobo. They looked great no hiccups and video was smooth.

    That's it for now.

    Fixing permissions seems to speed up the rom a little. Also downloading from the market seems to start quicker.

    This rom seems to start up in 10-20 seconds compared to all the other rom's that took a couple minutes. I love the new boot time

    Edit: battery now charges to 100% after fixing permissions!

    I heard that flash doesn't work on it though. Is that true? :(

    Ahhh, I forgot about fixing permissions. Anyways, my gtab got stuck in recovery boot loop after I went in there to clear batt stats to try to fix the battery issue.

    If anyone else gets stuck, here's the fix below.

    I noticed it takes some time to settle in. At first it seems laggy then it gets much better

    I think the latest update has "1e" at the end of the rom file. So if you're using that one, that should be the latest one.

    I agree with Prime it seems a little less laggy. The apps don't timeout as often.

    The Tom seems to be much smoother when using adw ex instead of stock. Also puffin is a more stable browser as of this moment then chrome

    I decided to go back to flashback until ics is more stable. I use my tablet for studying so I need it running fast and stable.

    The improvement in the 3/1/2012 update has improved the rom by 10-fold! I hardly have any issues. plus, installing the new Go Launcher HD tablet UI sped things up even further

    Darn! I really wanted to root my gtab to this rom of ICS but it did not work for me. I used the NVflash method to revert back to stock 1.2 bootloader with the newest CWM pre-loaded. Then I did the install from the internal sd using the 3DGtaB-GAppZ-8.1.zip file. When I try booting the tablet, it never comes up, then if I reboot again, it comes up on the viewsonic version of the rom with tapntap.

    Did you just flash the gapps file? If you did you also need to flash the actual ics rom. And you need to make sure you follow the entire process including repartitioning the internal memory.

    I agree its actually usable, IMO. Especially with the update from 3/17.
